Looking for Non lumber Oak, Maple, Cherry, Walnut Logs
« on: August 12, 2017, 11:42:26 am »
I want to start splitting firewood again but since I now live inside the city limits of Duluth mn, I can't just go knock down a tree and process it myself.

Anybody out there have a few logs they'd be willing to sell? Not saw logs, just a few 8'-12' logs I can block and split myself.

I hate the idea of going to a gym to workout when I can get a better workout at home and keep my family warm at the same time.

Paul,

You know what I mean though, stuff that you can't sell to the mill. My dad used to buy a truck load of it every year and the logger seemed all to happy to sell my dad a trailer full of logs he couldn't sell because of knots, rot, pitch, etc.

I have a feeling the guys on the landing used to say "Just throw it in Erics pile, he'll buy it.... then make his kid split it...."

Can you get some from a tree service?  Around here in metro areas they have to pay to dispose of tree trunks or have long hauls.  Not sure about MN though.  I would expect there is a higher demand for firewood there than here.

And then there is craigslist.   ;)
Lucas 6-13+slabber, Mr. Sawmill bandmill, orange chainsaws, JD SSL, Case Backhoe, farm tractors, trailers, and 150ish acres of trees.  Fledgling woodshop with CNC router, laser engraver, Woodmaster 712, and a Berlin 108 moulder (project).  Oh, and a lovely (patient) wife and four offbearers.

I guess I really don't care where I get the wood from, honestly I would like to support a local logger by buying stuff the mill wont but since I would be only dealing with a couple logs at a time I can see where that market might now exist or be serviced.

I sent some calls to tree services so I guess we shall see what happens.
